Operations bug

★★★★ Newbie
First off I love this game it's great but yesterday I ran into a bug that I just now encountered again. My problem is that if I get off the game or turn my xbox off any operations I had going on at the war table have their timers set to 9 and a half hours. It's horrible irritating when I get a 35 minute operation turns into an 9 and a half hour thing because I turned my xbox off

Is your system time/location data for your Xbox set correctly? Perhaps when the game starts it does a check for current time as compared to what time the game thinks completion is due, and if some details don't match, then the timer gets reset?

Ya I've had a simmilar war table related problem. I moved my Xbox to a different tv and when I started up the game all three operations I was doing had over a 13000 hour timer. This is pretty much a game killer as I am something of a completionist and the war table unlocks a lot of missions.

I encountered this glitch myself today on my Xbox 360.  I tried going into the settings menu on the Xbox menu itself and I did two things.  First, I went to Initial Setup and re-applied the time zone information, language etc.  Then I went to clock and found that the Xbox chromometer got sent back by 10 years!  I corrected the time and when I loaded my game the glitch was gone.  So one of those worked although I'm really certain it was fixing the clock that did the trick.
